Cheryl currently creates fine art in fiber and fabric in West Cape May, NJ, where she finds inspiration in the surrounding beauty of nature, the beach, and shore life. Cheryl is fascinated by color, texture, light, pattern, shapes, and movement. Using only fabric and thread, she makes “paintings” interpreting subjects such as sea life, sunsets, birds, landscapes, and skies, showing a refreshing point of view ... one containing whimsy, spirit, exuberance and depth of emotion.
Cheryl has a BFA from Syracuse University in Ceramics, and an MFA from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville in Fiber and Fabric.
